Collection Item Summary:
Food for three long-duration Skylab missions was stowed aboard the space station, some of it in lockers in the galley-wardroom, and some of it in the "attic" until it was needed. This is a container for storing canned goods. Inside each storage tube a removable rack held 12 cans of food, each a single serving for one astronaut. The rack kept the cans from floating about in weightlessness. Storage lockers loaded with these containers served as a pantry. This food storage equipment was used for training before the 1973-1974 Skylab missions.
NASA transferred this item to the Museum with the backup Skylab in 1975.
